Updated 2017: new product added!

The semi-aquatic terrariums show a split between land and water with a ratio that depends eventually on the pet you’ll get. With the terrarium you recreate your pets natural environment which is very important for your pet’s health and happiness.

Some terrarium kits like the Reptile Kit from Aqua Culture even come with water filter machine and filter. Every kit has its specific advantages.

The right environment should promote natural behavior and activity. It should make your little pet want to climb, hide and burrow in and around it. Health is the foremost sign that your pet is in the right environment. If he shows signs of illness or stress, change the terrarium environment by adding stimulating material. You’ll detect improper environments by interrupted sleeping and eating patterns of your pet.

If you’re not sure about your new little pet, ask in any case your vet for more advice for the specific requirements of your pet.

It’s working well for my green anole.

What came is top notch quality and materials.

So far this tank is really great. The decor it came with filled it out nicely, added a couple small branches I found outside to add more climbing opportunities for my new crested gecko.

Fantastic quality. Well designed. Sturdy. Overall I would purchase again.

Arrived on time and well packaged. Lovely, quality terrarium, and front opening doors make caring for you critter so much easier. Their vented doors also allow for good air flow yet still aide in retaining humility.

Very well designed, I’d recommend it to anyone who’s a first time reptile/amphibian owner. The swinging doors are really cool.

* Prices are good at the time the article was written, but subject to change without notice.

    I like terrariums because they are easy to maintain. But of course, as your post outlined, there is always the setting up and the plan to take care of it.
